(Debuted at #2) Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris: “With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover Eric Northman and his ‘child’ Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master.”
